Shift boot store


3. This is the general idea: red - screws, yellow - locking tabs, green - velcro tabs

4. Remove the shift knob - push the shift boot down over the shift knob locking nut - use the 3/4" crescent wrench on the locking nut and the adjustable crescent wrench on the shift knob to break them apart - unscrew the shift knob.


Remove the ash tray, turn the A/C controls horizontally and raise the emergency brake handle to the most vertical position

5. Yellow - locking tabs, Green - velcro tabs, White - pry with screwdriver wrapped in a cloth to avoid scratching.

6. Remove the front console cover by popping the 6 locking tabs from the slots in the dash and the 2 velcro tabs
- use the flat head screwdriver and start with the two lower tabs and 2 velcro tabs
- pop the two upper tabs located above the stereo towards the ends
- pop the two middle tabs that are on each side of the climate controls
- unplug the electric window (2), defrost and lighter (2) connections that are attached to the back of these controls


Remove the two screws (phillips head) that attach the forward end of the center console and the two9 that attach the rear end of the center console

- slide both seats to their full back position in order to gain easy access to the rear console screws

Carefully lift out the center console making sure to thread the emergency brake handle through it's boot

7. Remove the boots by bending straight the metal locking tabs. Remove the boots from the boot frames with a flat head screwdriver. Clean any excess epoxy from the boot frames. Install the new boots onto the boot frames by applying Amazing Goop with a utility brush - use a respirator mask for protection against inhalants - allow them to set completely.

8. Reinstall boots onto the center console.

9. Reinstall center console, front console cover, ash tray and shift knob


Useful tip

You have installed a product made out of genuine leather. As you know, to maintain a leather product in good condition, you should take care of it. We suggest occasionally (every 4-6 week for example) applying some leather conditioner/UV protector to keep your leather from drying up in the sun and cracking.
